Riley, my precious son, you are…..
Handsome….oh how handsome I think you are. I think you are such a perfect combination with eyes that could make any girl swoon.
Funny…goodness how you can make me laugh!
Politically incorrect….which contributes to making me laugh but gives me a little heartburn too!
Sarcastic….which you come by honestly and I’m always hopeful others “get” you.
Big Brother….amazing big brother! You are sometimes hard on your little siblings but it’s obvious you totally want the best for them. You make them laugh with all your antics and they adore you.
Little Brother…your big sis is lucky to have you looking out for her and cheering her on.
Role Model….you are in the spotlight a lot and even though you would prefer not to be you are looked up to by so many young boys and you have been a good example.
Organized….almost to a fault sometimes as it takes you forever to get your stuff together you are so anal about it all. I’m not sure you have ever eaten a warm meal either after watching you organize the food on your plate just so before beginning to eat.
Caring….you try to pretend you don’t but you totally have the biggest heart.
I love you to the moon and back and hope this is your very best year yet!
